City Seeks Volunteers for Planning & Zoning, Historic Preservation and Impact Fee Committees

Historic Preservation Commission

The City of Twin Falls has one open seat on both its Historic Preservation Commission and Planning & Zoning Commission, as well as two open seats on the Impact Fee Commission. Each volunteer seat will serve for a 3-year term and serves in an advisory capacity to the Twin Falls City Council.

The Planning & Zoning Commission reviews proposed amendments to City Zoning and Subdivision Regulations and makes recommendations to the council; conducts a comprehensive plan as required by law; decides requests for land use permits under specified by City Zoning regulations; decides appeals; and more.

The Impact Fee Committee is advisory to the City Council and reviews the capital improvements plan, proposed amendments and final written comments. The committee also evaluates implementation of the capital improvement plan and generates reports to the City Council annually on the Impact Fee program.

Historic Preservation meetings are focused on applications for Certificate of Appropriateness, Community Outreach, and Grant Applications to support historic preservation projects. There are times when members will volunteer time outside of the normal meeting schedule to plan, participate and research for special projects and events.

Property owners within one of the locally recognized historic districts are encouraged to apply. Local historic districts include: the Warehouse, City Park and Downtown Districts. Applicants must live within the Twin Falls City limits.

The City will be accepting applications until the Commission vacancies are filled. Interested persons may apply using the Advisory Commission Members Application form.
